Martha Argerich and Sergei Babayan
Prokofiev for Two
Pianists Martha Argerich and Sergei Babayan have been artistic friends for years. They’ve just released Prokofiev for Two, an album of 2-piano transcriptions (dedicated to Argerich) by Babayan of Prokofiev’s music for stage and screen. The centerpiece of the recording is a suite of 12 movements from the ballet, Romeo & Juliet.
